Editorial Reviews


"It's a dark story about a dark world, but Skomal makes the story readable and lovely via her prose. A haunting reminder about the loss of innocence."-- Kirkus Review
"WOW! Third Willow by Lenore Skomal is a coming of age book for young adults. The author has provided discussion questions at the end of the story. The plot is simple and straightforward. Each of the children carried their own burden. While the plot focuses on Hap and Patsy, Beah and Raz lend much to the plot. The story is told from the point of view of the children allowing the reader to witness the emotions at work. Hap's story has a bittersweet ending. I will not share it with you; read the book. As an adult I was reminded of the differences between the social mores of the 50s compared to today's society. I highly recommend this book for middle school and older. This is one you won't want to miss. This book blew me away. - Readers' Views

"Skomal rises to the level of found poetry, 
The smell of raw sewage pinched her nostrils and she shook her head to try to deaden it. She drew forward a few more paces, but the contrast between the stark sunlight behind her and the black night in front of her was disorienting. She was scared like she had never been scared before, but knew she had to keep going to find out what had happened to Raz and Runt. She pricked her ears and could hear both of them crying.
That is pretty good stuff, as is Third Willow itself. Skomal has potential to be a first-rank novelist. I think you will enjoy getting in on the start of her career, in advance of the parade."  - San Francisco Book Review

From the Author

Third Willow is drawn from the childhood experiences of my father, who grew up in Nebraska during the depression. I set the plot in 1954, in post Korean War, small town America for good reason. This was a fascinating time in history and it was really the era that ushered in so many changes in the our country both socially, economically and culturally. --This text refers to the paperback edition.
